“Nice Location, Very Reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Accommodations were more than adequate. It is in the center of downtown shopping, restaurants, bars, bandshell. It has great view up and down the beach. Good breakfast in the morning. Helpful staff. Good parking. Very reasonable rates. Can't beat it.

Dang. Sure which we had stayed longer. If you're going here for the first time, plan a longer stay. Lee checked us in and was very nice and friendly. The late nights did not allow us to check out breakfast. The beach was 200 steps from he front door of the hotel. Parking was excellent. Some of the parking is choice. We had a split view of the ocean and street side with a balcony and perfect view of my car. Even though we left late a couple days the room was still cleaned. The beach is endless. We know where to stay next time we visit.

There's no bargain to be had at JAX Beach, but this is probably my favorite of its beachfront hotels. It can usually be found at a bit cheaper rate than the others. It's not real big, & the pool area is small & not ideally located, but it does have a good complimentary breakfast, and its rooms have balconies. The ocean front ones are really nice, & it has micro/fridges throughout. It was convenient for me to lock my bicycle in the garage that's under the hotel, & with the gate surround, it was very secure & out of the weather. Overall, I'd stay here again, but have to find it at a reduced rate.

Room Tip: Beachfront will cost you more, but most side rooms still have a great partial ocean view at a lesser...

I recently stayed overnight (April 20, 2013) and didn't have a lot of time to explore the great location and what there was to offer, but I was VERY IMPRESSED with the service that I received from Angie. She definitely loves her job and working with the public and it shows. It is so nice to see this level of service as you don't find it in a lot of places in today's world. HUGE THANK-YOU to Angie and keep smiling and providing the service that you do so well!!!!!
